The story in the newspaper says the former member of Fleetwood Mac died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and left a suicide note. He's apparently been having some serious health issues and I suppose his outlook was bleak. Damn.
I saw him live at JFK Stadium in Philly when he doing his solo stuff after releasing his first record (I think) and had that big hit 'Ebony Eyes'. Fleetwood Mac was the featured performer that day, but there were something like 10 different bands that day, and it was a scorcher. The temps had to be in the 90s.
I want to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.
After Fleetwood Mac but before "Ebony Eyes", Welch formed a band called PARIS..............I was playing the rock scene in Dallas at the time and our band learned the PARIS hit, "BLACK BOOK".......a hard rockin' tune that was a surprise coming from someone like Welch..........it was fairly popular in 1976.
After "Ebony Eyes" I saw his band open for some act in Dallas...........can't remember who.
The band sounded good but I remember Welch being very upset with the sound company.

I must have seen him when I saw Fleetwood Mac in Philly in 74, but I don't remember him. That might have been because I was really looking forward to seeing Jefferson Starship who was the headline act, or the fact that Triumvirat had just opened the show and blew everybody away with their performance.

or the fact that Triumvirat had just opened the show and blew everybody away with their performance.
Oh man, you got to see Triumvirat live? I've always wondered why there is no live material from them other than a few tracks on the re-releases of their CDs a bunch of years back. There must be something kicking around somewhere. Even Starcastle was able to come up with a show.
I loved that first Paris album - it was so quirky, but heavy. And Big Town 2061 wasn't bad either. I don't think either of them are available on iTunes. I once saw the first Paris CD where there were still CD stores, but it was a really expensive import. I still have the vinyl though.
